Meet Bailey Ziehmer, an 18 year old published author who loves Marvel, dreaming, and tacos. She loves writing vampire books and likes to go out of her comfort zone at times. She's trying to write other supernatural books. If your looking for books full of twists, turns, and cliff hanging endings then check out what she has to offer.
Two books she has written are The Unforgettable Vampire and The Unforgettable Relationship. Both are available in eBook, Paperback an Hardback formats. Here is a bit of what The Unforgettable Vampire is about.
"In The Unforgettable Vampire, you meet Bailey Chase, an eighteen-year-old girl who lives with her alcoholic dad. They just moved to Williams, Arizona, where Bailey expected a new start and a new life. Sadly, at first, she doesn't get her wish. Her dad is still an alcoholic, and her mother is dead. The worst part is she has had to up and leave all her friends. When Bailey meets Damon Jackson, it isn't love at first sight. And when Bailey finds out what he is and what the town is full of, she instantly draws more attached to the town. Damon is the bad boy of the town, the one most girls throw themselves at, but Damon won't let them in. Bailey and Damon end up discovering they're more alike than they thought, and their friendship turns into something more. You soon find that Damon is an -uncontrollable monster, - according to his brother, Steven Jackson. Though Damon may try to fight it and others may not believe it, Bailey ends up being the one thing Damon needs: a friend, a lover, and an unforgettable angel."

I asked Bailey a few questions about being an author. Here is what she had to say.
How has your writing progressed or changed as you write more books?
When I wrote The Unforgettable Vampire Book 1 I had just turned 17, had a disability in writing, and had no help. Now I’m 18 and in just the 1 year I’ve learned the difference between words, found out how you’re supposed to write as an author, and learned that less is sometimes more.
What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
Trying to figure out what they think or would do in certain situations.
Have you ever gotten writer’s block?
Yes, many times, but usually if I work, nap, or watch some TV. I get out of it and start writing again.
As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
Defiantly a Butterfly because like a butterfly my writing as evolved and changed shape to become something beautiful.
Does writing energize or exhaust you?
Both, when I first start I’m energized but at the end of the day or when I’m done writing a very emotional scene then I’m exhausted.
How have other authors helped you become a better writer?
Since I’m only 18 they have helped guide me through the author world, told me what was good and what was bad, helped with promoting, and gave some great advice.
There you have it. It just shows that no matter whether your think your can or can't, whether you think your too old or too young, if you put your mind to it, you can do it. Write on, Bailey!
